Re: Galaxy S2 shutting off in idle mode

Had enough after 3 SoDs in one day. Took 2-3 hours, figured out how to install Cyanogen 9 ROM (gives me 4.0.4 android, not JB). No SODs, no bloatware, and seems to be improved battery life (maybe 30-50% better than stock 4.0.4.)
While I am apparently not allowed to provide any info or links on how to do this (it does surprise me that ATandT can send a software update that breaks my phone and thats perfectly fine, but if I include info in a post about a fix that is somehow off limits...), I can say that:
- I didn't lose any data
- My apps came back automatically
- the biggest issues were resetting all my credentials (e.g. the Facebook app needed me to log in again) and setting up my home screens.
The SGH-i777 is a good phone. Android is a good OS. Its all the other stuff that screws it up.
